    Yes they can. Those wasps that build nests in tubing can really cause problems. My front diff vent line was plugged from one of those, strong enough blockage to blow fluid out the diff cover gasket.

    i thought so. but, i dont think theres any wasp crap in there. I'll just shoot some break cleaner in there then blow it out with air that should be good enough.
    thx
